Sarge replied to the topic 'February song of the month' in the forum. 4 hours 4 minutes ago

Yes, the song of the month should be fun plus give the player a chance to possibly learn and let the other members hear their rendition of the song. Yep, some of the songs are old, but it's good to keep those old songs alive; some of them are not old even though they may sound old. Anyway, they are for sure to have fun with.

I'm kinda with Dexer, though I haven't played the last few for other reasons. Don't forget it's up to us to nominate songs for the song of the month (to Marcy and Sarge). But a lot of these songs are out of my comfort range, which is a good thing as it forces improvement. 'Let me Call you sweetheart' for example really pushed my bending skills on hole 3, and I had to improvise around the verse a bit too.

I'm not sure whether members are aware that this part if for fun and for improvement, not for showing off your playing skills. That can be done just by posting a video. Here we play our interpretations of songs with the hope of feedback - constructive but not necessarily just 'well done'. Well, that's how I treat it anyway.

Welcome Jordan

There are many here able and willing to help, so if and when you have any questions, give us a call. You can also moan to Dexer about the costs of Harmonicas in Canada.

OK

Not been posting for a while (and not been that able to play) so this is a bit rusty and it doesn't seem to fit - or I can't get the ear quite right - into the diatonic.

Connie Francis had the most beautiful singing voice and quite easy on the eyes. Good choice Dex and you did fine on it.

Nice one! Easily recognisable. :)

(I'm going to make this thread a sticky, as it may encourage the 'not quite beginners' to post video or sound clips.)

Well Dezzy,for a beginner,there wasn't a great deal wrong with it,as you say it is a struggle to play a Tremolo harp until you get used to them.I think they are good for playing those French Tunes like " Bridge of Sighs"I-E: How would you like to be,down by the Seigne with me.You probably know it anyway.As for me, it wasn't a harmonica that I wanted to play.Eric33

Amazing Grace is one of the tunes I always start any instrument with, that & When The Saints Go Marching In, & I'm not religious, they're just easy tunes to start with. :)

Never heard of Hey Little Hen, where does that come from?

Dexer created a new topic ' Not Quite Beginner Videos :)' in the forum. yesterday

Oddly, something jarred my memory and I recalled that, at one time, I could "sorta" play WHERE THE BOYS ARE. So I refreshed my brain and recorded it with my CX12 (a harp I've rarely recorded with).

I'm one of those folks cursed with inability to see youtube videos posted here as "My Videos" but I can view the direct links...so I wanted to post a direct link.

This doesn't really fit anywhere. It doesn't deserve it's own thread but I don't want to keep clogging up the Beginners Videos thread with my miscellaneous warblings. So I created an inbetween thread...not good enough to stand alone but shouldn't be used as unneccessary filler for the beginner thread. Feel free to post anything here (but try not to make me look TOO bad!)

Video 1. I grabbed some pics from the net for my tribute to the girls from WHERE THE BOYS ARE.
